Paul McCartney turns 64 this month. We'll pass on the&.Ya say it's your birthday/will ya still need me, will ya still feed me and all that&. and just say that during his 6-plus decades on the planet he's offered us some great insights on life or as he calls it, "The wonder of it all baby."

In "Wonderful Christmas Time" he tells us, "The moon is right, the spirits up, we're here tonight and that's enough."

His philosophy on working for a living shows up in "Live and Let Die": "What does it matter to ya, when you got a job to do, Ya got to do it well, You got to keep the other fella happy."

In "Riding to Vanity Fair" he offers, "The definition of friendship. Apparently you're to be sure to support the one that you love."

He offers advice for when you don't know where to turn or what to do. Just remember, "There will be an answer, let it be."

And once he wrote, "Some people want to fill the world with silly love songs. What's wrong with that?"

Happy Birthday Paul.
